Attached are 4 photos that I took between October 1978 and June 1979 probably in the Wichita, KS Frisco yard. I didnít document my shots so that is why I canít pinpoint the time and location exactly.
The photos show a string of 8 recently out-shopped boxcars with 5 50ft. Missouri Pacific cars and 3 40 ft. Frisco cars sandwiched in the middle of them. The Frisco cars are 24004, 24006, and 24005 lined up left to right. I assume these are rebuilt PS-1's
By enlarging the side shot I took of car #24004 it shows a shop date of SF 10-78. The cars have had the roofwalks removed but retain the high ladders and brake wheel. There is a placard in the lower left corner warning of the lack of a roofwalk. I also assume the cars received a new door and would like someone to identify the type.
I for one would like to see Kadee produce this car and if Ken or someone else feels the same and wants to contact them that would be great. Their current catalog doesnít list that particular door being available separately.
